    Microsoft latest service!

    Hi guys,
    This was going to happen and finally Microsoft has come out with its initial web hosting plan. What do you think about this?

    Re: Microsoft latest service!

    I would love to know what peoples thoughts are on this. Here we have the 2 things that webmasters love to hate, those being Microsoft and web hosting.

    On one hand I think it is all but guaranteed that they will be successful atleast in regards to Billys bottom line. What about the webmasters bottom line? We all know the bar in the web hosting industry is set extremely low, will Microsoft web hosting rise above and show others how it should be done? Maybe Microsoft will not be able to rise above thus giving the micro-haters more reason to rant.

    I will save my thoughts, I want to hear others

    Re: Microsoft latest service!

    my oppinion... i think it is a bad move by microsoft...

    like dave said, one thing webmasters hate is microsoft...

    on top of that, have you seen their prices? they are extremely high for such little they offer!

    i mean really, i have a 1gig, 50gig transfer, unlimited subdomains, unlimited mysql & SQL databases, php, asp, ftp, perl support, 10 parked domains, 10 addon domains, unlimited ftp accounts, unlimited email accounts. and the beauty of it all... I GOT IT FOR FREE!

    i cant even think of how they expect people to pay $50 a month for 1/3 of what i get for free.

    anyway... the only upside i can think of getting by using microsoft's webhosting, is 99.99999999999999999999% uptime rather than 99.7 or 99.9 (have you ever seem microsoft down? (i havn't)

    also, some people (like my father and brother) are microsoft junkies, they will buy everything microsoft offers, this is bad for other webhosts.

    i think it was a bad idea,

    The only people they'll get to sign up for their web hosting are people who haven't (or won't) shop around. It's crazy to pay twice the price for half the features of other hosting companies.
